Primary and early years educators from South Australian government schools and preschools are encouraged to register their interest in 1 of 3 professional development packages aimed at developing their capability and confidence in teaching music.
All packages include a full day professional development workshop with a registered music education organisation and attendance at a half-day Music Education workshop with Dr Anita Collins, Neuromusical educator.
Each package has been prepared to connect with the Australian Curriculum. Participants will learn more about how they can deliver music education in the classroom and about the benefits of music education, its impacts on wellbeing and the development of children.
The professional development packages support the state governments Music Education Strategy which sets out South Australia’s long-term vision that all children and young people throughout their education have access to high-quality music education that is valued and inspires learning.
The first set of workshops are set to begin in March, 2020.
